        About your instructor, Paul Caggegi

        My name is Paul and I have got a passion for 2D illustration, storyboarding, and comics.

        My history with Blender stretches way back to dabbling with the 1.8x series, where incremental saves and backups were just part of working with it because there was NO UNDO!  More recently, however, I began experimenting with 3D for 2D solutions to help me with comics, storyboarding, and illustration work. With the recent advent of the Grease Pencil tool, my workflow has been completely revolutionized.

        If you have an interest in exploring the 2D capabilities of Blender, I’m here to guide you!
